Course content

Economics research at Sussex is aimed at improving people’s lives – often the lives of the poorest. Much of our research is policy oriented and has immediate policy relevance. You’ll work with applied researchers – we choose to tackle problems we know are challenging policy-makers.

We welcome research proposals in applied economics in areas such as:

  • international trade and trade policy
  • poverty and development
  • labour, health and education
  • environment and energy
  • quantitative economic history.
